Race Update: Overcoming Challenges at Paris-Brest-Paris

August 26th, 2011

via Michael Henderson in Paris:

[The race] turned into an epic, which I shall detail in the next day or two. It started perfectly with the first day going as planned. What was not in the plan was getting no sleep the first night and catching cold at the same time… I thought I had recovered on the morning of day 3. That was not the case, it caught back up to me that evening. I stayed an extra unplanned night at the last control point before riding in [yesterday] morning in 78 hours and some change.

I’m a little upset at not riding the fastest I could, but I’m very excited to have finished despite the obstacles. Finding ways to overcome the problems along the way is what randonneuring is all about, and I did that in spades. Hope to have some time to begin recounting the details tomorrow…

Congratulations Michael!

August 18th, 2011

Michael Henderson loves to ride his bicycle… really, really far. Michael left earlier this week for France to compete in his firstParis-Brest-Paris Randonneur. First run in 1891, the 1200-kilometer Paris-Brest-Paris, or “PBP” as it is commonly called, is a grueling test of human endurance and cycling ability. Organized every four years by the host Audax Club Parisien, the Paris-Brest-Paris is the oldest bicycling event still run on a regular basis on the open road.
